Dry Land Distillers 100% Antero Wheat Whiskey is made with grain developed and grown by Colorado State University in partnership with Colorado growers. This grain is a hard winter wheat grown less than 30 miles northeast of the distillery. It has impressive spicy notes, lots of character, and offers a phenomenal backbone for traditional whiskey cocktails.
This whiskey's layered, deep nature lends itself well to stand up in a cocktail. From Manhattans to mules to Juleps, this is a great choice.
Why Antero Wheat? This particular wheat variety was developed at Colorado State University's Agricultural department as a viable and sustainable option for Colorado's climate. Because this is a true "dry land" wheat, irrigation is only used if water is available and needed, making it an ecologically desirable choice. That, coupled with its inherent deep fruit flavor profile made it and easy choice to make a whiskey. We hope that you can taste the sun-kissed grain, and care taken to produce it, from seed to glass, in every sip.
